Project Snapshot

A transport company saves $50 million USD by optimizing yard operations

A team of analytics specialists, working with a client to optimize the movement of containers between trains and trucks, analyzed historical schedule data and built a simulation model to run “what if” scenarios. The result: greater insight into the ideal size of yards and resource needs, as well as a container-movement strategy that helped cut costs by 30 percent.
